16 bit transparent Image renders color data on CPU Cycles

Worked: (optional)

Short description of error
Rendering a transparent Filmic Log 16bit PNG image plane (meaning node color space set to filmic log) with Cycles the CPU renders color data where there should not be any. The GPU works as expected.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
every thing with Cycles (have not tested eevee)

  1. render something with transparent background and save as PNG (RGBA, 16bit)
  2. import image as plane ( shadeless )
  3. set image node color space to Filmic log and background to transparent
  4. rendering with CPU or CPU+GPU results in the tiles rendered by the CPU to have color data (see image)


  • on the left is no image plane, only the transparent background
